"I’m only a few hours into this but already I can see why a Fellowship is far more than just the bursary – people at work are emailing with their past experiences, and I can see why now this is a Fellowship for life! Amazing!" - 2018 Fellow, on announcement day

Everyone can apply, regardless of age or background, and no qualifications are required. Just a passion to make change happen in the field of your choice. How to apply

Applications for our next round of Churchill Fellowships will open from 16 May 2019 to 5pm on 17 September 2019. These are for research trips in 2020 and beyond. Application timeline.
